That's how things look in the brave new world out there:

A dismantling society that still pretends we're rebuilding.

Attitudes that perpetuate political stances that should have been discarded long ago.

A species that abolishes itself and still laughs.

An art circus that forgets its own revolts.

A spectacle culture that creates the cement.

A scene that is preoccupied with its own structures.

Discursive landscapes that cancel slogans that are contaminated.

Let's ask it like this: was the cleaner who removed Beuys' “Fat Corner” in the 1980s actually right?

We, the STWST, want to target things that can be removed in 2024.
And ask: Who saves the art? Who will write the prompts for the future?

If you are interested in contributing something to STWST 2024 on this topic, which is currently still deliberately open, in a form that has not yet been defined, please send an informal email to:, subject: Kann weg. Or: Soll her.

STWST48x10 NOPE - Aviso and CALL
With STWST48x10 NOPE. 48 HOURS OF VARIOUS COMMENTS, STWST announces its 48-hour format for the Ars in September. It takes a critical and lapidary approach to cheerful activism and mood-lit resignation. In the midst of multi-crises, totalitarianism and toxic hallucinations, hope itself becomes a category of struggle: optimism is ramped up - but for what or against whom? N/OPEN CALL with DEADLINE on 31 June.
